Stampin' Up! Honey Bees - Beehive box

Hello everyone

Today's project is a lovely octagon box, that looks a bit like a beehive.... well that was the intention, what do you think?

I used the Honey Bees Stamp set and coordinating Detailed Bees dies and some of the free Sale-a-bration Golden Honey designer series paper to decorate.

Here is the lovely box... cute eh?





These are the measurements to make this box:

Whisper White card: 8" x 10 1/2", scored at:
on long side 1 1/4",  2 1/2", 3 3/4", 5", 6 1/4",  7 1/2",  8 3/4", 10"
on short side: 1 1/4", 2 3/4", 5"
turn back and on the long side score from score to the first horizontal at 1 7/8", 4 3/8", 6 7/8", 9 3/8"
from where these score lines meet the horizontal, score to both the right and left hand corner of the box beneath

Here is a template
______  cut lines
- - - - - - score  lines
Pink = remove this area



To decorate the box, cut Golden Honey designer series paper as follows:

4 pieces = 1 1/8" x 1 1/8"
4 pieces = 1 1/8" × 1 3/8"
8 pieces = 1 1/8" x 2 1/8"
